Introductory examples and guidance for therapists in working with the voice using mapping and writing based on Cognitive Analytic Therapy
Time of Event

About the Event
Our voices are the overlooked but everpresent companions to therapy. How do we give voice to our voices, find lost voices or change the weight, direction and manner of our speaking? What are our professional voices and how do personal and societal voices interact? Can we learn to pay attention to micro shifts in the registering and inflexion of our voices and vocalisations? (see our post on Therapy with the Voice)
This half day introductory workshop is repeated for the fourth time due to popular interest. It offers CAT informed ways of working with the voice as a therapeutic resource. It is led by Steve Potter and Lucy Cutler. They will give examples and show methods of working with the voice in the context of mapping out reciprocal role procedures, working with links and gaps in memories and stories and re-voicing parts of reformulation and good bye letters as well as bits of in-session therapeutic writing.
Participants will go away with guidelines and tools for working more deliberately and co-creatively with their own and the client's voices and the contextual voices that literally and metaphorically inform and surround the shared therapy space and life space of the client.
Participants who are interested can join in a follow up supervision workshop to share reflections on experiences of adding voice work to their therapy practice. Places are limited to ten participants so we have room to share our voices. Steve Potter and Lucy Cutler are both Cognitive Analytic Therapists and are in the process of writing a book entitled Therapy with a Voice using the tools and methods of CAT.
